Fruits of the forest muffins

December 9, 2016

Servings 12


  • 300g of plain flour
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 120g of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • 275ml of milk
  • 100g of white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100g of frozen mixed berries
  • 50g of black cherries in syrup, tinned, pips removed
  • 90g of crunchy oat cereal, nut free


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and then add the sugar
  3. Crack the egg into a separate bowl and add the oil, beat until light and fluffy. Then, add the milk and whisk the mixture for 1 minute.
  4. Fold the egg mix into the flour – be careful not to over-mix but ensure the flour is mixed in. There may still be a few lumps but this is fine.
  5. Roughly chop the cherries and fold in to the mix along with the chocolate and mixed berries.
  6. Place the muffin papers in a muffin tray and spoon in the mixture. Remove any raisins from the crunchy oat cereal and sprinkle onto the top of each muffin – you could also use seeds instead.
  7. Bake the muffins for 25 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  8. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow to cool in the tray before placing on a wire rack. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
